My wife and I sailed on a Celebrity cruise for the first time. We've been on Princess and Carnival in the past, but this ship beat them all!
Ok, so first the good.
From the moment we entered the ship to the time we left, the crew was always making sure the entire boat was clean and sanitary, huge considering two other ships had to return to port during the same time as our cruise. Every time you past a crewmember in the hall there always a hello or good day.
The food was good in the buffet and in the Main dinning hall, and was excellent in the Tuscan Grill (extra cost). Drinks were pretty easy to get considering there were 3000 other people also trying to party. It seems like there is a bar around every corner, which I loved. We had the classic drink package, which for use worked out ok. The only drinks we had to pay for were an occasional martini. Seating was abundant and very comfortable. Loved the Sunset Bar at the back of the ship!
The house band, Vibe, was great!
Some things I didn't like:
Dinner took too long! 2 hours if we were lucky. Yuck!
Smokers had a spot right by the doors you go through to eat at the buffet. Had to hold your breath through the fog. Yuck!
People were saving chairs, and you wouldn't see them for hours. Hate that!
Shows were ok, but geared to the older people, except for Sin City Comedy, which was awesome
No nightclub for afterhours dancing.
Staff couldn't seem to generate excitement for events, so most were cancelled.
